UNCONTAINABLE LOVE

I was going down, thought it was for the count
But then I found Your love
I'd wandered off, thought I had gone too far
There I found Your love

The fear I used to know, can't stop me anymore
'Cause I found Your love
When I feel alone, I have a place to go
'Cause I found Your love!

Great, was the debt of sin
Grace, bought me back again
Now, I am rising up
Won, by the Savior's love

Your love, is higher than the stars
Declaring who You are
Your love, uncontainable
Your love, is deep enough to reach
The deepest part of me
Your love, uncontainable
Your love...

Nothing, no nothing contains Your love
Nothing, no nothing can change Your love
Nothing, no nothing contains Your love
Nothing, no nothing can change Your love
Nothing, no nothing contains Your love
Nothing, no nothing can change Your love
Nothing, no nothing contains Your love
Nothing, no nothing can change...

Your love, is higher than the stars
Declaring who You are
Your love, uncontainable
Your love, is deep enough to reach
The deepest part of me
Your love, uncontainable
Your love, is higher than the stars




THIS IS AMAZING GRACE

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You've done for me

Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of Glory, the King of Glory

Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You've done for me

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy, worthy, worthy

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You've done for me
All that You've done for me
RAISE A HALLELUJAH

I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me

I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!

I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me!

I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!

Sing a little louder (In the presence of my enemies)
Sing a little louder (Louder than the unbelief)
Sing a little louder (My weapon is a melody)
Sing a little louder (Heaven comes to fight for me)
Sing a little louder (In the presence of my enemies)
Sing a little louder (Louder than the unbelief)
Sing a little louder (My weapon is a melody)
Sing a little louder (Heaven comes to fight for me)
Sing a little louder!

I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!
GOOD GOOD FATHER

I've heard a thousand stories of what they think you're like
But I've heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you're pleased
And that I'm never alone

You're a good good father
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am

I've seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I know we're all searching
For answers only you provide
'Cause you know just what we need
Before we say a word

You're a good good father
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am

Because you are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us

Oh, it's love so undeniable
I, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable
I, I can hardly think
As you call me deeper still
As you call me deeper still
As you call me deeper still
Into love, love, love

You're a good good father
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am

You're a good good father
You are perfect in all of your ways
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
You are perfect in all of your ways
It's who I am, it's who I am, it's who I am
How do we respond when we think God put the WRONG PEOPLE in charge?
As Citizens of Heaven how do we relate to "earthly" authorities being Ambassadors of Christ?
TWO KEY DEFINITIONS:

1. Everyone = Everyone
2. Be subject = Submit / Obey
Too often believers profess submission to God but neglect submission to delegated authority. They are deceived and in danger of judgment
BIBLICAL SUBMISSION IS NEITHER BLIND NOR ABSOLUTE. BUT, IT IS ALWAYS RESPECTFUL.




EXAMPLE OF BIBLICAL DIRECTIVE VS HUMAN RIGHT

Free Speech - Biblical Speech (Ephesians 4:29-30)
Even when we cannot obey earthly authority, but even then it is done with respect and a submissive spirit.
The only time – the only exception in which we are not to obey authorities – is when they tell us to do something that directly contradicts what God has stated in His Word.
Examples:
Peter - Stop Preaching about Jesus!
Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego - Bow down and worship the King
Daniel - Stop Praying
Israelite Midwives - Pharaoh we will not kill every male baby
TAKE IT HOME: WHY DID PAUL INCLUDE THIS IN HIS LETTER TO THE CHURCH AT ROME?

1. The GOAL is to advance the GOSPEL
Jesus doesn’t need us to win his battles. Just represent him well.
2. God is in CONTROL of who is in CONTROL
ULTIMATELY, A NATION GETS WHAT IT DESERVES.

GOD IS INCREDIBLY PATIENT AND WE ARE INCREDIBLY SHORT SIGHTED.
God is often working in ways that we don’t see or understand. Yet, God judges everything in its own time.
3. We're called to honor the POSITION, not the PERSON.
The greatest battle we face is not overcoming unjust laws, but becoming the kind of people WHO REPRESENT JESUS WELL.






HAVE IT ALL

You can have it all, Lord
Every part of my world
Take this life and breathe on
This heart that is now Yours

You can have it all, Lord
Every part of my world
Take this life and breathe on
This heart that is now Yours

Oh, the joy I've found
Surrendering my crowns
At the feet of the King
Who surrendered everything

And all the peace that comes
When I'm broken and undone
By Your unfailing grace
I can lift my voice and say

You can have it all, Lord
Every part of my world
Take this life and breathe on
This heart that is now Yours

There is no greater call
Than giving You my all
I lay it all down
I lay it all down

There is no greater love
No higher name above
I lay it all down
I lay it all down

You can have it all, Lord
Every part of my world
Take this life and breathe on
This heart that is now Yours
